Well knotted: 214 K Pure Materials coffee house chair
No, you didn't fall for it - this chair really has a knot in its leg. A tribute to the special manufacturing technique that made this chair possible in the first place.
The most successful industrial product in the world - the famous Thonet coffee house chair is an icon and marks the beginning of modern furniture design. It is based on the technique of bending solid wood, which Michael Thonet tested and perfected at the end of the 1850s. In this way he made series production of the chair possible.
Its clear, reduced aesthetics have allowed the classic to grow in popularity for over 150 years, making it the perfect chair for a wide variety of environments. It is produced in Frankenberg and is available in various versions.
Designer Michael Thonet
Michael Thonet was born in 1796 in Boppard am Rhein, where he also opened his own workshop in 1819 from which the world-famous manufacturer Thonet emerged. This is still family-owned, now in its 5th generation. Michael Thonet was a master carpenter and is regarded as a pioneer of modern furniture production and design. At the beginning of his working life he was intensively occupied with the possibilities of curved wood and as a result he also dealt with the economic implementation of late Biedermeier furniture forms and their industrial use.
Thonet - 200 years of tradition
The Frankenberg-based manufacturer stands for durability and an irrepressible drive for innovation. Thonet was the first manufacturer to market bentwood furniture and distribute tubular steel furniture. Michael Thonet founded his own workshop in Boppard am Rhein in 1819. In the 1830s, he experimented with veneer strips cooked in glue and is therefore regarded as the inventor of "furniture made of curved wood". In 1842 he was invited to Vienna by the Austrian State Chancellor Prince Metternich and the coffee house culture there laid the foundation for Thonet's later success. Given this willingness to innovate, it is not surprising that Thonet also cultivated links with the Bauhaus and Marcel Breuer. Thus, Thonet implemented his experiments with cold-bent steel tubing and produced the well-known cantilever chairs.
